Hi everyone, Gaby here with a CAS card using some dies I like, layering, and markers.  I wanted to challenge myself to make some nice cards without using stamps.  I started by die cutting the hearts out of two pieces of cardstock, one pink and one white.  Then I ran a coordinating piece of cardstock, one in white and one in kraft and ran them through my Xyron to use for layers.  Then I placed the leftover piece from the die cut onto the sticky side of each layer and replaced the die cuts into the opposite color paper, like an inlay.  Once that was done, I cut the paper at an angle and then adhered it to a pink piece of 4.25" x 5.5" with foam tape.  I had some additional die cut words that I covered with Glossy Accents and let them dry.  Once I attached those, I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops and some faux stitching with a Copic Multiliner and a white gel pen.  Once that was all dry, I colored the inside of the hearts using a Spectrum Noir Glitter pen.

The heart die is from Simon Says Stamp and the words are die cuts from the Lawn Fawn heart envelope die.  I will be posting more cards like this in addition to my regular projects that use stamps, stencils, inks, embossing powder, and the kitchen sink! I just think it's nice sometimes to use some of your supplies that you might forget about because of all the new products. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss. First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.




This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.



I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.

Give Thanks for the Little Things

Hi everyone, Gabriela here as part of the Want2Scrap blog hop! I did a project that you can use for you Thanksgiving table or have in your house all year long. This took me about an hour and a half to finish and it was very simple to make. I used a mirror for this, but you could use an old frame or a shadow box.

 

I started with the 12" round mirror, a chipboard die cut from Want2Scrap, Honeycomb 102, and Mahogany ink.


I inked "The little things" with Mahogany ink and then cut out "Give Thanks for" on my Cricut from the Honeycomb paper.





While I let the chipboard dry, I put Want2Scrap bling around the edge of the mirror for a decorative effect.  This part took the longest, but I put on some music and I was done in about 30 minutes.




To make attaching the letters easy, I used my Xyron to put adhesive on the back of the paper and the chipboard.



Finally, I attached the words using a ruler and my cutting mat to line everything up; here's the finished project.



The first picture was taken with nothing in the reflection and the second was taken to show how the words look with a reflection of something.  I am planning on getting a plate stand for this so I can display it for Thanksgiving! If you use a frame or shadow box, you can hang it on the wall as decor for the whole year.  I hope you liked this project and you give it a try, thanks for stopping by.

I'm using the Anchors Aweigh Collection along with some of my favorite Xyron products to make a mobile that you can gift for a baby shower or use as an inspiration for yourself. I'm using some supplies I found in my craft room, so this is a simple project you can do in an afternoon/evening.

Xyron and Quick Quotes, Make a Banner Page

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a page using Club Q for this month with some help from my Xyron supplies. I made this page a banner page because of the adorable twine included in this month's Club Q. I also attended a quilt show this past weekend and decided to "hang" some of my favorites from the show on the banner. I started by choosing my 3 favorite pictures from the show and then built the page around that idea.


 

 Check out the video below to see how to put this page together.



I hope you enjoyed the video and you're inspired to make a banner page of your own. Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.
